Stephen Philips has long been reknowned in the ambient community, both for his deep evocative ambient music, as well as for being the brains behind the marvelous Dark Duck Records music label, which hosts a huge collection of ambient music available both for sale and for free download (via the Drone Download Project). If you don't know much about Dark Duck, you really should visit this link:
Along with his studio music, Stephen is also an accomplished performer of drop-dead gorgeous live ambient music, both in front of live audiences as well as via net radio. This album is such a performance, recorded Live on Stillstream.com on January 29, 2008.
On this evening, Stephen blew the audience away with a subtle and seductive performance that had them talking for hours afterwards. Earth Mantra has long been a fan of Stephen's music, and we have heard him perform live many times, but even we were left dazzled by Stephen's latest handiwork. Truly this is one of the best live performances in recent memory, and we are very happy to be able to bring it to you as an Earth Mantra release. Give it a listen and see if you agree.
